I got these for my boyfriend and he loves them. Got these in his normal size, but he said half a size smaller would prob fit better because heel slippage. But overall love the boots and will last a long time. They look better the more rugged and worn they are!

Great boots that a more stylish than the iron rangers. The beckmans have all the benefits of the iron ranger, plus a half vibram sole which provides traction in rain and snow. The boots are comfortable but take time for the mold to the shape of your foot.

Great boots with a comfortable cork insole. The sole takes a little time but then molds to your foot which makes the boot super comfortable. The full grain upper and good year welt allow the boot to last for 5-10 years easily when they are cared for properly. Once the sole is worn down, it can be replaced by redwing or a local cobbler for a small fee. Although they have a work wear look, the boots are not made to work in. The sole is leather and provides no traction in rain or snow.

I love these boots. I found them on sale in regular width at a department store a few years ago and decided to buy another pair in extra wide off Zappos at full price recently. They can be comfortably worn every day. I constantly get compliments on them.

The Beckmans are truly impressive boots. I purchased the Black Cherry Featherstone colorway and they are beautiful. I strongly recommend sizing them a half size down. I found the Beckmans to be more immediately comfortable than my pair of Iron Rangers.

I spent far too much time (according to my wife, anyway) deciding which pair of Made in USA leather work-style boots I wanted to buy. I had three basic criteria: 1. Made in USA 2. Classic styling (either moc or cap toe) 3. Black leather I chose the IRs based on their huge cult following, and I was certainly impressed with the quality of these up their arrival. The leather is thick and will last a long long time. The insoles just ooze of old world quality. The hardware is nearly indestructible. If this is the sort of boot you’re looking for, you would be very well served with these boots. The style perspective of these is truly unmatched. They are the epitome of “cool” without being overly trendy or too “hipster-y”. In the end I opted to return these for really one reason - the sizing. I have had other boots, even other Redwing Heritage line boots, and the IRs definitely run a good bit narrower. I am a solid 8M and have never needed a EE width, but with these I definitely do. I was ready to go all in and just swap the 8Ms I ordered for 8EEs, but the Harness Blacks in 8EE were out of stock. So, I did some more review reading and decided to check out a very similar, and equally fan loved, cap toe boot (the Chippewa Homestead in Odessa Black). I kept the Chippewas, but I am getting ready to order the IRs again, but in the Muleskinner leather/color – the IRs are that nice. If you are considering them – DO IT. Just keep in mind the width issue and enjoy!

The leather and look of the boot are great with the color very similar to what is shown on the website. Right out of the box they were comfortable but a little stiff, something that worked out very quickly over a few days of wearing them around the house and in the field. The fact that they run large to size partially worked to my advantage since I need to wear a substantial orthotic in one shoe. On the other hand, my "normal" foot would be more comfortable in a smaller size. I come to these Red Wings from over 40 years of wearing boots with a western heel, so getting used to a low block heel took some time. I think that a version of the Heritage Iron Ranger with a low, underslung western heel would look sharp, and attract folks who are used to wearing packers. The style and durability of these boots allow them to function as both work boots and casual wear.

Beautiful boot. Great craftsmanship and quality. I would say it runs a little narrow in the toe box and wide in the heel.

These are by far the best-crafted boots I have ever owned. They more than live up to the reviews I read. I am now saving p to buy another pair.u

I love these boots so much, the soles are soft, and I can already feel the leather wearing to the shape of my feet. I'm anticipating they'll be super comfortable before too long. I love the way they look and the quality of construction! I was skeptical about how small they run despite the other interviews and I ordered a size 11 and an 11 1/2 to see for myself. I normally wear a size 12 sneaker and the heel was slipping in the 11 1/2...so a full size was right!

I am extremely happy with my purchase of this classic Red Wing boot. I was hesitant at first to spend the extra money, but it was well worth it. Just like a great suit, you need to consider it as an investment because these Red Wings will last you 10+ years. I took the advice from other reviews and ordered one full size smaller. Yes, they are stiff right out of the box. No worries though, I applied leather lotion and they were good to go after about a week. Break them in just like a new baseball glove and they will have a perfect fit. I live in West Virginia and we deal with some miserable weather for a good part of the year; I needed a “go to" boot and these Red Wings do the job and then some.

These are awesome! Make sure you buy 1/2-1 size smaller than your regular size. They will take some time to break in. I wear these as an everyday shoe, some projects around the house and love them. The soles will need to be replaced once every 1-2 years depending on how much you use them. The leather is outstanding and made in the Red Wing, MN USA!

LOVE these boots. This is my second pair. The first ones were great, but got left at the beach and swept away...RIP. I have another pair of Redwings and went a full size down the first time and took 6 months to get comfortable. This time I went half a size down and have moderate break in, and room for boot socks. WIN.

This is an amazing boot! The leather is soft to the touch but does need some breaking in to be at its best. The interior sole is a very hard leather that needs some use to mold to your foot and become very comfortable. I wear a 9.5 in all my athletic shoes, a 9 in cowboy boots (Double H brand), and had to get an 8.5 in this one to fit perfectly. I mainly wear these boots to work (walking in grocery and convenience stores as a sales rep) and any other place wear a dressy casual look is called for. I highly recommend these boots, just remember to size down .5 to 1 whole size down as they do run large.

This is an amazing boot. It's super stylish and looks even better with wear. The construction is high-quality and I'm confident that my pair will last me decades. I recommend conditioning them with Lexol when they start to get dry. Sizing: You will definitely need to size down. Most of my shoes are 10.5 or 11 but this boot fits me perfectly in size 9.5. Comfort: These boots are a bit heavy and will feel stiff until broken in. They're not incredibly comfortable, but they're not at all bad, they just don't really have any padding.

Very nice boots. This will be the third week of wear,almost have them broke in. The only thing I wished they had is a loop at the back of the boot to pull them up.

Very well made boots! I have been wearing them for about a week now. Definitely the worst break in period I've ever dealt with but they are loosening up and I think will become the most comfortable boots I've owned.

These are my first pair of Red Wings and they've quickly become my favorite boots. I've had them for about 5 months and I end up wearing them 5-6 days a week. I purchased these because they are supposed to run narrow and I have a narrow foot. They are perhaps a little narrower than most medium width but they're still wide for me. They also run true to size. I typically wear a size 11 in boots (IE: Chippewa, Thorogood)and these in 11 fit just right. They do require break-in. For me the foot bed was comfortable from the start. Even though it starts as a flat piece of leather, it has enough give in the beginning to be comfortable. It took about 3 weeks for the foot bed to start to mold to my feet. Now they just keep getting more comfortable. The upper leather (Briar Oil Slick) is thick but pliable. I did wear one blister in the first week when walking downhill. The leather was well oiled when I received these and all I've done so far is brush them off every now and then. I have not needed to treat the leather yet. Typically, over-treating leather boots will make them wear out quicker so I typically only treat my boots once or twice a year depending on how they feel. These have held up really well. I only have a few negatives. I don't really like the look of the white sole. I would prefer something darker but they are really comfortable and quiet when walking on a hard floor. They also grip well for my needs. These boots are also not great for walking on slopes. Because the foot bed is smooth leather my feet tend to move back and forth a lot when walking either downhill or on a cross slope. If my feet were wider this might not be an issue. They're fine on flat ground. These are easily the most expensive shoes / boots I've ever purchased. But they are extremely well made and comfortable. I love the way they mold to my feet.

The most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. My foreign made size is 13 but had to go a 12 in the Heritage line.

I finally found a comfortable Chukka. These are very similar in feel to the Chippewa's that I have and like as well.
